Blood pressure?: This is not my specialty, but maybe i can point you in the right direction. It sounds like you are seeing a cardiologist, which is the right thing to do. Common causes of this condition in a young person would be quiet, untreated high blood pressure, diabetes or both together. They make the main pump chamber in the heart work too hard. That's what one treats.
